“Social distancing does not have to equate to spiritual distancing.”
- Pastor Eric Rivera
As the coronavirus pandemic unfolds, we are encouraging you to trust The Lord, be persistent in prayer, and continue to reach out to your faith family and friends. During this time, The World needs The Church to be a light and we need each other to flourish; we believe The Lord is in control.
As your church, we are committed to continuing to shepherd and desire for us to stay as closely knit as possible.
To do this we are providing weekly worship guides complete with worship songs, a sermon, reference scripture and discussion questions. Please join us in continuing to worship the Lord as a church family.
This Friday we will join together with several of our partnering churches for a joint Good Friday service, hosted by First Presbyterian Church - Trenton.
The service will begin at Noon and will be livestreamed via Facebook & Youtube.
We are also encouraging our Cornerstone Church family to fast together from either 9am to 3pm or 12pm to 3pm; representing the time Christ was on the cross.
Last year we asked everyone to be more intentional about evangelism and gospel declaration. As a church, we think that this current pandemic is not a reason to stop intentional outreach, but is a unique opportunity for us to think creatively about how to reach out with the eternal hope of Jesus Christ during a time filled with uncertainty and fear.
We’re relaunching our Mission Three campaign and inviting each of you to join in:
- Who are three people (or families) that you have a unique opportunity to connect with during this time?
- How can you pray and connect with these people?
- Reach out and ask how you can be praying for them.
- Find unique and creative ways to check-in and bless each person God has laid on your heart.
- Share sermons, worship guides and/or devotionals directly or via social media.
- Let’s use the time that God has given us in our homes to pray and plan how we can consistently lift these people up to God.
Discipleship groups will continue to meet via ZOOM (or Skype or FaceTime). We need each other for encouragement, strength, laughs, gospel reminders, and emotional support. Group leaders will work with you to determine the right tool for your group.
Sign-up for a Discipleship Group HERE.
The coronavirus has altered every area of our lives, but some realities still remain the same. We still have spiritual struggles and we have a real enemy named Satan seeking to destroy us.
As your pastor, I am still committed to shepherding and providing spiritual care. I’m available during this time and I desire to serve. I’ve set-up a schedule to provide time to talk, counsel, and check in virtually. Please don't hesitate to sign up. I’d love to discuss Scripture, provide counsel, or pray privately with you during this time.
Set up time with Pastor Tyler HERE.
Hang tight while we look up scheduled events...
If we are going to see the Lord's Kingdom advance in Northwest Detroit, the spiritual dead come to life, disciples made for Christ, and personal spiritual growth in our lives, PRAYER must be PARAMOUNT. As a church family, we have drifted from emphasizing prayer recently. We must reset and make prayer a much bigger priority in our church body. Prayer is non-negotiable if we desire to see The Lord move greatly in our church body and community.
A Community of Prayer
We as a church family gather for prayer every Sunday at 10:30 am prior to Worship Service. I want to encourage you to make this a priority at least once or twice a month. Together let's make prayer a priority.
We also just began using a new resource called Prayer Loft. This is a great way to share prayer requests, pray for others and to be intentional in prayer. Check it out HERE. Please feel free to add prayer request (this can be done anonymously as well).
"Rebuilding broken lives, families, and communities on The Cornerstone, Jesus Christ through declaration and discipleship."
BUILDING BLOCKS (Core Values)
We are a church that shares Christ with the world through gospel declaration; we believe in declaring Christ's good news in every sphere of life as the only means to man's salvation, transformation, and growth.
SHARING OUR LIVES
We are a church that shares our lives through gospel demonstration; we believe people will see The Gospel and heart of God through life engaging evangelism/discipleship, radical hospitality, and intentional diversity.
SERVING OUR COMMUNITY
We are a church that seeks to bless our community with gospel deeds; we believe our community will feel The Love of God through our pursuit of justice, sacrificial service and acts of extreme generosity.
